Default Interview Questions

I would like to know the type of questions normally asked by an interviewer recruiting people for vb.net programming.

I agree that it depends on the inteviewer.

However, I've done this for many years and have hired many programmers. The one thing I have learned is NOT to take someone's word for knowing some technology. I always ask if they are generally familiar and have experience in a programming topic and then I ask very direct questions like..

1. So you are familiar with ADO.NET. Can you tell me the basic steps you would use to retrieve data with ADO.NET. I'd be looking for connection, command object, data reader or dataset. What's the difference between a dataread and a dataset? When would you use one versus the other? I'd then ask things like do you bind controls. How do you do it?

2. When I ask people about SQL programming experience I ask questions about how to do things. Amazingly, one that trips up a lot of "wanna bes" is I tell them I have two tables and I want to pull all records from table A and any records from Table B that match. How would you do that? This is a very elementary SQL concept, but something people with only minimal SQL knowledge can't answer. I also ask them to explain things like primary and foreign keys, triggers, UDF's, etc.

3. I ask about web programming. Get them to describe ASP programming. I ask them what is a web form and what makes an ASP page a Webform. I ask them what draw backs they have seen with WebForms. I ask them about postbacks. I ask how postbacks work. I ask about executing client side javascript (as in how do you do it). Again, you either know this stuff or you don't. You'd be amazed at the people who claim to have web programming experience, even ASP.NET and they've really only done stuff slightly more complicated than something in FrontPage.

4. I ask about webservices. I ask about what steps are involved in calling them. I ask about WSDL. I ask about compiling a WSDL.

When direct questions like this are asked, you find out very quickly who has embellished their resume. Personally, I would rather have someone say I'm sorry, I am not familiar with that than to lie and say they have done it. I find that people who are up front about their skills are easier to bring along because I don't waste time giving them projects they clearly can't handle.

Another point that is important to understand:

For the right employer/manager, it can be more important for you to answer honestly that you don't know something but express that you know how to find the answer. Absolutely NO ONE can be expected to know all the answers. However, someone who has a grasp for the concept and knows how to figure out what they need can be far more valuable than someone who does not have those problem solving skills and can't see the picture as a whole. (As is often evident by questions and answers posted on this forum.)

There is a quote I recall (not sure where it came from) that goes something like this:

"An expert is not someone who knows everything about a subject, but someone who thoroughly understands the basics such that they can figure out what they need to solve the more complicated problem."

(I'm sure the original quote is much more eloquent than that, but that's the general idea.)

That is really true of me. I can tell when someone's making it up or doens't know the right answer... I'd respect them saying I don't know- but I know where to find out.
